Download E-books The Guns and Flags Project (New California Poetry, Volume 6) PDF

By Geoffrey G. O'Brien

Captivated with paintings and dream, shot via with climate and colour, Geoffrey G. O'Brien's lively debut pursues the potential of the lyric itself - even if the voice raised "with melodies/and thinking" will be rescued from the continuing catastrophe of growth. In roving five-beat strains the poems cross time and again via scenes of liminality - sundown and sunrise, falling asleep and waking up, border crossings - looking out there for a possible ethics and politics of imaginative and prescient, a mutating, rhythmic "project" to oppose the inert spectacle of weapons and flags. Like Ashbery stoked on sonics, O'Brien insists that the stressed, unhappy movement of suggestion needs to carry where for an ever-decaying freedom in the country. but it isn't thought by myself that flares "passionately in our lives," however the odor of rain, the habit of clouds, repetitions of waves: those are the themes of a meditative ecstasy that advances The weapons and Flags undertaking as an heir of the Stevensian culture, charged with a feeling that history''s unending typhoon of recovery and destroy can't be outmaneuvered yet can be withstood, or even revised, through music.
